A good write-up of the "monster below" plot. I like that it's rough and can handle some editing. And the open end can be easily handled by a "wing-it" GM. I did notice a few typos though. Great work Scras. Easy to use in a flash in any city the PCs might be in.

Edit- Just wanted to add that this is also a plot I will remember and will thus use when I need it without the need of the write-up. And I love that. When plots have this fundament which is easy to use and handle. Go to Comment

Ah, the old "monster in the sewers" plot. Excellent written, as always, and at first I think it's a 5 for sure. But when you come to the possibilities it is as if the climax I was kind of anticipating doesn't arrive, and I am left slightly disappointed. (just a bit)

Still it is pretty darn good. A great version of the old sewer monster plot. 4/5 Go to Comment

I actually used this one at one point, so here I am, finally commenting on it.



It went great. I was running a pretty hack-n-slash AD&D game at the time, and this was a great plot to run, as it was fairly quick, easy to drop in, and highlighted a lot of character that doesn't normally come through. After running a bunch of adventures that took place in unpleasant places, it was fun to run one that focused on the unpleasantness.



Two thumbs up.

An excellent, simple adventure. It could lead to more if the PC's happen to find something interesting while searching the sewers for the monster.

Old but a goody. :) An excellent low level adventure to break up the monotony. Once the Heroes find and deal with the beast, it would be cool if they had to also find out who was responsible.

Another interesting thing of note is that alligators grow much faster in darkness. Go to Comment

Now, this is an example of how an assassin can be written well... now, Scras, you wouldn't mind a bit more of personality? Go to Comment

Intriguing idea about a half Displacer Beast. I like this character and plan on working her into my campaign as someone being blamed for some killings that she didn't commit. Maybe she was set up, or maybe it's just coincidence that she is blamed. 5/5 Go to Comment

Answer to MoonHunter

You're right of course - the likelihood is dependant on the availability of easy (and comfortable) long distance travel and efficient transport of goods, which is why this is a relatively recent phenomenon in the real world.

Bear in mind however that in a truly magical fantasy universe much of what we do with technology can be achieved with magic (teleport spells, flying ships, bound spirits / minor imps to carry messages, etc). This means that a fantasy world with a medieval of earlier technology might well have more modern culture, at least in some respects. Thus a playground for the rich and famous might well exist.

Another plot hook

Don't forget the paparazzi (or some equivalent) - the rich and famous can get REALLY annoyed about these guys - plenty room for PC fun here, either as the paparazzi trying to unearth an embarrassing story or as a nobleman's bodyguards trying stop them. Go to Comment

Nice. I like the concept of the "social elite" district, and the potential complications of PCs ending up in the "no poor people allowed" sector. It does seem to me that it has the potential to devolve into Soap Opera Central, if not used properly. Go to Comment

MoonHunter's comment on 2004-12-29 08:51 AM
That is because you have seen Shrek II one time too many. It is a good idea, the dig at modern culture aside. The only thing that limited the existance of such places in the "real world" was the ability to travel. There was a limit to the distance that could be convienently traveled (in comfort). This limited the concentration of rich/ noble/ important people, to only those in a certain area. (Plus how far did the goods have to travel to satisfy them). If you "wave your hand" to that issue, places like this have to exist. Go to Comment

Already got the ball rolling, besides most of the above listed shops are going to run exorbitant prices. The fantasy equivalent of $3000 dresses, diamond studded shoes, and the most expensive of fragrances. Theatres are a must, as well as reputable establishments for gambling, but it has to be tailored and immaculate, this isnt Vegas, you know. Thanks for the comment, I like the connotation of the Forbidden city, I was slighty fixed on an amalgam of Rodeo Drive, and Fifth Avenue. Go to Comment

Don't forget places to waste cash, man! Theatres/gladiatorial arenas, a noble casino or two, an extra-fancy auction house...
the major banks should also be housed in the vicinity, perhaps this area of town could be surrounded by a second city wall, creating a true forbidden city... Go to Comment

This is a great location, especially for high fantasy, but I'm pretty sure the Romans had an equivalent place.
